Posted: Updated:

Guam – More restrictions will be imposed on registered sex offenders if legislation introduced by Senator Tony Ada becomes law. Bill 385 will prohibit convicted sex offenders from being employees in areas that would bring tem in contact or close proximity to potential victims. The bill bans these individuals from working at childcare facilities and schools when children are present, dental or physical therapy facilities when patients are present, and nursing homes.  Convicted sex offenders also could not be employed by providers of goods or services that require the offender to enter a private residence. Ada states, "Sex offenders have a proclivity to re-offend. Studies clearly show that sex offenders have a high likelihood of committing further sex crimes even years after their first offense. We have a duty to protect our people from victimization."
